AMERICAN YEARBOOK CO. 




Congeniality makes our school tick. The students are friendly and courteous to each 
other. They try to help each other with the many problems that confront high school 
students. Junior and senior high school students share the same study area in our 
library. The students support the extracurricular events by either participating or 
being a spectator. This year school spirit is an essential part of the school calendar 



The grind is made easier through the cooperation and the collaboration of the faculty 
with the student body. Most of the students are interested in learning and try to respect 
the teachers. The teachers are willing to give individual help and treat the pupils as 
young adults. Some of the faculty have interest in extracurricular activities such as 
the Chess Club, Analect, Film Club, Chorus, and Pep Club. 

Teachers as a group get along well with each other. All faculty work together to im- 
prove the school and facilities. They put much work into making this school what it is. 
What we lack in facilities, they make up for in knowledge and guidance for the stu- 
dents . 

The people of our town and neighboring towns contribute to our school system by 
attending our outside activities such as plays, basketball games, and other events 
throughout the year. In addition the townspeople support our school by offering schol- 
arships and awards from individuals and groups . 



If it is a question of making or breaking Burgy High, the students, faculty, 
munity will make it by working together .

Dedication 



In past years the Tattler has been ded- 
icated to a person with outstanding 
characteristics. This year the Senior 
Class decided to dedicate its yearbook 
to Williamsburg High School and to all 
the people who make it function 
smoothly. Our school, although not 
perfect in every respect, offers a well- 
balanced curriculum with dedicated 
teachers . Everyone works to put our 
school in a well-respected position in 
our town. We, the class of 1969, wish 
to dedicate this yearbook to Williams- 
burg High School and to all the future 
graduating classes.

Business Courses Gain Importance Each Year 



Many more students are taking the busi- 
ness course than ever before. This 
course includes a wide variety of sub- 
jects from which a student may choose. 

For one thing, the field of Computer 
Programming is growing more and 
more each day and a person need not 
have a college education to enter this 
field. Typing and mathematics, two 
subjects offered in the business course, 
are helpful in preparing for this career. 
Another career which still has a great 
demand for workers is the secretarial 
field. Shorthand and again typing are 
the necessary requirements for this 
career.

The Applied Science Class enjoys an informal discussion with instructor, Mr. Buck. 



In an age of scientific advances, courses in 
science have become increasingly important 
to the high school student. The curriculum 
at Williamsburg provides many choices for 
the student who is interested in the fields 
of science. Whether he chooses Applied Sci- 
ence, Earth Science, biology, chemistry, 
or physics, he can gain valuable knowledge 
through study, experimentation, and in- 
vestigation.

Excellent Instruction Is Given In Mathematics 




Zell Mitchell and Sandy Suchecki learn the fundamentals of math. 



Mathematics has always been an important part of any high school curriculum. 
Courses in mathematics at Williamsburg include General Mathematics, Algebra 
I and II, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry. The Mathematics Department has 
established an outstanding record for providing each student with excellent col- 
lege preparation which comes through a solid understanding of the basic principles 
of each course. 






Mr. Bjorklund explains a difficult equation to the Math IV Class.

Our History Courses Are Outstanding 




Mr. Cannon gives his point of view on the Mexican War 



Mr. Cannon and Mr. Tonet instruct their students in U.S. History 
and Current Events. Mr. Butterfield teaches Ancient History "like 
it was." Especially relevant and challenging this year, the history 
courses require much outside reading and research. 



United States History 
students have to listen 
carefully in class and 
take good notes to 
make the grade.

The language courses this year 
are closely related with the 
culture of France, Germany, 
and Ancient Rome . Mrs . De - 
Nood's classes study French 
literature, Mr. Matz's sing 
German folk songs, and Mr. 
Butterfield's discuss Coriolanus 
and gladitorial fights . Audio- 
visual aids are used in the 
courses to present the sounds 
and sights of those countries 
more vividly to the students . 




French pronunciation conies easily to Donna Russell, Nina 
Korowski, and Charlene Leduc. 



Honors Are Given To Outstanding Studeni\ 




The hard-working and aspiring student at 
Williamsburg may gain special honors and 
educational opportunities in the course of 
the school year. A student who wants to 
learn more about the processes of our gov- 
ernment may be given the opportunity to 
participate in either Model Congress or 
Student Government. Those students who 
attain scholastic averages of eighty -five or 
better and demonstrate service, leadership, 
and character may qualify for membership 
in the National Honor Society. For the senior 
girls, two additional honors are possible. 
One senior girl is chosen from the results 
of the Betty Crocker Homemaking Test as 
the girl with the most domestic skill and 
understanding. Finally, the senior girl 
who best displays the qualities of depend- 
ability, service, and leadership receives 
the D.A.R. Good Citizen's Award. 



Elaine Clark and Jean Pomeroy are this year's 
winners of the Betty Crocker Homemaking Test 
and the D.A.R. Good Citizen's Award respec- 
tively. 





CTIVITIES

The Seniors Take Revenge On The Freshmen 




In the first days of the school 
year, the Freshman Reception 
at Williamsburg High School was 
held with the greatest of success 
and good will. Unlike past years, 
hazing was prohibited at any time 
other than at the reception, so 
when the time finally came, the 
vengeful seniors laid their wrath 
upon the freshmen with glee. 
Some of the "tortures" included 
walking blindfolded across a 
"sea" of peanut butter, looking 
for a grape in a whipped -cream 
pie, and eating cream covered 
bananas . Understandably, the 
upperclassmen enjoyed the whole 
spectacle, but it was noted that 
many freshmen themselves 
smiled at their classmates' mis- 
fortunes under the short rule of 
the seniors . 



Scott Davidson and Robert Nehring are fed Jello by Marlene 
Sporbert and Jean Clark in the Jello Eating Contest. 



In the freshmen boys' beauty contest, Stanley Kajka won the audiences' approval and walked off with first prize.

Class Officers Play An 
Important Part In 
School Activities 



Student Council has been very active this year . 
During the fall several members of our Student 
Council visited Monson High School to see how 
other councils function. Also at Christmas time 
they organized an assembly which was enjoyed by 
faculty and students . The Council also sponsored 
a successful dance. This year the Student Council 
has also been working on revising the present 
dress code. After many meetings with Mr. Knight 
and the School Committee, they have finally put 
the code into a form that was suitable to be sent 
before the School Committee.

Council, leads a busy life.

Extra Duties Are Important In School Procedure 




This year's Library Aids are Jean Pomeroy, James Ross, and Amy Edwards. 



The Library Aids are important in the function of 
our studies. They keep an orderly account of all 
books and records for the convenience of their 
fellow students . 

The Student Guides help our school run smoothly. 
They are "on duty" between classes and make 
sure everyone is going in the "in" door and has 
his shirt tucked in. They also have more serious 
duties . When there is a fire drill the Student 
Guides check the rooms, make sure everyone is 
out, and then close the fire doors. Mr. Tonet, 
the vice principal, supervises these Student 
Guides in their duties . 




Robert Scott is on duty.

Congeniality Is Shown In TattlerWork 

This year we have had a great group of students helping on the yearbook staff to put in- 
to pictures and words the story of our school activities . Although we have had to do 
some fast working at times, we have all tried to keep up our spirits. The personality 
of the students is represented in the make-up of the yearbook. We try to cover all ac- 
tivities throughout the school year. It is our hope that the material covered will inter- 
est the students and faculty, as well as outsiders .

Analect And Film Club Are 

Credited With Many Successes

The first year of Williamsburg High School's Film Club has been one of surprises and 
disappointments . At the beginning of school, the club undertook the task of setting on 
film a musical interpretation of Everyman's Day. A current idea is to illustrate Vir- 
ginia Wolff's short story "A Haunted House." Experience is still the key factor to the 
success of the club, but the enthusiasm shown by the members assures much progress 
in the future. 

Analect improved this year in quality and expanded in scope. The Analect staff edited, 
printed, and sold the first issue, but collaborated with the office machine class in the 
production of the last two . Thus the staff was able to spend more time and care in 
proofreading and editing, while the office practice class demonstrated their technical 
skills. Analect was a success this year as a result of student interest, staff and office 
practice class competence and the concerned guidance of the faculty advisers, Mrs. 
O'Donnell and Miss O'Day.

The cast of TWELVE ANGRY JURORS put much practice into making the play a success. 

Burgy High Has Had Another Successful 



D 




Have you ever wondered what goes on in a jury room? 
TWELVE ANGRY JURORS, an adaptation of the three - 
act play TWELVE ANGRY MEN by Reginald Rose, was 
presented at Williamsburg High in the fall of 1968. The 
play is a tense, suspenseful drama concerning twelve 
jurors faced with determining the guilt or innocence of 
a boy accused of murder. The wrathful jurors were 
played by Richard Loomis, Douglas Vile, Judith Connell, 
David Shea, Betsy Feiker, Maureen Boyer, Carolyn 
Madison, Mary Ann Karowski, and Margaret Molloy. 
Brian Rapalee and Robert Scott took the parts of clerk 
and judge, and the guard was played by Timothy Daggett, 
The excellent and patient direction of Mrs. Halberstadt 
and Mrs. O'Donnell made the exciting story come alive 
on stage and was reflected in the enthusiastic audience, 
which showed that Burgy High had had another successful 
dramatics season.

Through the cooperation of the students, the show was an outstanding success. 
Playing to a full house, the cast, singers and dancers alike, showed spirit

of nearly professional quality.

Last year Charlene Par- 
row was chosen queen. 
Members of her court 
were Marilyn Messick, 
Judy Connell, Gloria 
Bushee, and Ann 
Kellogg. 




The Whale Inn, transformed into a romantic gar- 
den, provided a perfect setting for the Junior - 
Senior Prom of 1968. On May 10, 1968, smiling 
girls and their handsome escorts danced through 
the evening in an atmosphere of "In the Days of 
Wine and Roses." The long awaited moment 
arrived, and Charlene Parrow was chosen to 
reign as the 1968 queen. Her court included 
Marilyn Messeck, Judith Connell, Gloria 
Bushee, and Anne Kellogg. An overwhelming 
success, the 1968 prom will long be rememberec 
by all who attended.

This year's debate resolution was: Resolved that the United States should esta- 
blish a system of compulsory service by all citizens . 

The Debate Team, under the direction of Mr. Peter Stradinski, displayed a 
great deal of enthusiasm and effort during the 1968-1969 season. Pitted against 
many larger schools, Williamsburg placed eighth in the Connecticut Valley 
debate competition, beating Chicopee Comprehensive and Northampton High 
School, which placed ninth and tenth respectively. One important highlight of 
the debate season was a victory over Amherst which tied for second in the final 
positions and suffered only five losses out of twenty-eight debates. 




Jonathan Montague, James Edwards, Amy Edwards, and Edward Parsons worked very hard to make this year's 
debate team one of the best Williamsburg has seen in years.

Cross Country Ends Thh 



'...-■ 




The cross-country team, with the absence 
of a strong runner like Warren Messeck, 
proved somewhat of a disappointment comi 
pared to last year's championship team, 
but nevertheless fashioned an impressive 
6-3 overall record and placed tenth at the 
regional meet at U Mass. Included in the 
six wins were victories over Greenfield, 
Northampton, and Pioneer. Burgy was 
shutout by Southwick, the first whitewash 
of the cross-country team in three years. 
The other two losses came at the hands 
of Amherst and Turners Falls, two of the 
top three teams in Western Mass. 

Co -captains Timothy Daggett and David 
Graves were the most consistent runners, 
placing in every meet, while James Tayloi 
who started poorly, came on to place in 
seven meets. Freshman Peter Hale and 
John Clark, a junior, were the fourth and 
fifth men . 

The J. V. team won three of five meets 
and finished fourth at the regional meet. 
Richard Scott, Robert Turner, and Donak 
Munson formed the nucleus for the future 
varsity runners . 

Next year's squad will lose Daggett and 
Graves, but it is hopeful that the remain- 
ing runners will show the determination toj 
win. 









Raymond Smith displays the form that is typical of 
a cross country runner.

For the second time in the last three seasons the varsity basketball team finished 
with a losing record. It was primarily a rebuilding year with an entirely new varsity 
of three juniors and two seniors as starters. Inexperience, inconsistency, and lack 
of rebounding strength was evident in the 5-15 overall record. Despite its shortcom- 
ings in the win column, the 1968-69 squad exhibited a characteristic spirited play 
which nearly always kept the team in its games . Highlighting the season was a very 
rewarding seven point victory over St. Mary's on its home court, and heart breaking 
two -point losses to Precious Blood of Holyoke and Belchertown. 

Next year's quintet will be sorely pressed to fill the vacancies of this year's seniors 
--David Bachand, leader in all offensive categories; Robert Beebe; and George 
Lavalle--but a host of vastly improved J.V.'s promises a varsity team loaded with 
potential for the 1969-70 season.

J.V.'s Have A Highly Successful Year 




FRONT ROW: John Clark, Steven Rapalee, James Taylor, Samuel Williston, Thomas Hillenbrand, Charles 
Parsons, George Childs. BACK ROW: David Bauver, Barry Richardson, Philip Graves, Stanley Kajka, Robert 
Nehring, Peter Hale, David Adair. 



The 1968-1969 campaign was another highly suc- 
cessful year for the boys' Junior Varsity basket- 
ball team, as a definitely improved squad 
finished 16-3, two of the losses going to a tal- 
ented Southwick team . 

Chief reasons for the impressive record, which 
included at one point ten straight victories, were 
good shooting, rugged rebounding, aggressive 
defense, and a determined attitude by both the 
experienced starters and capable reserves. 
Highlighting the season was Samuel Williston's 
new scoring record of 239 points in a single 
season. 



4?1 




Although many of this year's starters will be 
competing for varsity positions next year, the 
J.V. outlook remains excellent to produce a 
strong nucleus for another successful year. 






Thomas Hillenbrand outjumps his opponent. 






More students participated in 
the intramural sports than ever 
before. The first intramural 
sport was the boy's basketball, 
tin which four teams were play- 
ing for the championship. The 
final outcome was an over- 
whelming victory for the Junior 
Class. 

The junior and senior high 
school girls also showed much 
interest in intramural sports 
by participating in the girls' 
volleyball match. Out of the 
fourteen teams, the seniors won 
the championship, but in an 
additional run -off between the 
juniors and seniors, the juniors 
proved the better. 

On the intervening days of the 
same week, the boys also had 
a volleyball contest. In the final 
match the tension was great as 
the seniors played a close game 
with the competitive sopho- 
mores. The outcome was a 
victory of two points for the 
seniors. 



David Bachand, Robert Scott, and Stephen Kopka do their share 
in helping the seniors on to victory.

Hard work and never ending prac- 
tices, along with the help of our 
coach, Mrs. Evelyn Kmit, brought 
our girls out in front again this 
year. We had a very successful 
season, winning 11 out of 15 games 
and beating last year's record.

Become One Of The Best 



The girls' Junior Varsity basketball 
team enjoyed a very successful 
season this year, winning 9 out of 
12 games . The experience they 
gained in playing on the Junior Var- 
sity team prepares the girls for the 
rugged action of Varsity in the 
future .

Burgy Leaves With Good ' 

Recruits 

The 1968 baseball season was mainly a rebuilding year for 
Burgy, with new personnel at nearly every position except 
for seniors James Brown and captain Robert Wilson at first 
and second bases. Inconsistancy in hitting and fielding due 
to inexperience paved the way for a 5-9 record. 

Highlighting the season were a 4-3 victory over a strong 
Granby team and a convincing 10- win over eventual pen- 
nant winner St. Mary's of Westfield. George Lavalle 
proved to be our most valuable player, hitting a .404 clip 
and pitching several brilliant games, despite a 4-5 mound 
record.

Golf Team Has Winning Season 




The Golf Team had its first winning season 
in 1968, under the direction of Mr. George 
Munroe, the new coach. The team defeated 
Smith Academy, Gateway, and Hopkins Acad- 
emy. The team should be as strong this year 
because most of the starters will be 
returning.

Junior high school classes are made up of stu- 
dents from many areas: Davenport School in 
Chesterfield, Haydenville Center School, West- 
hampton Center School and Williamsburg's Anne 
T. Dunphy School. 

We have three sections for each grade and we ro- 
tate our class work to facilitate adjustment to the 
high school program of varied studies. About 
twenty students in these classes are on the Honor 
Roll. 

We can proudly say that we have many students 
who participate in the school's extracurricular 
activities. Many boys are on the athletic teams. 
About ten made the track team and one made the 
Junior Varsity basketball team. A junior high 
school basketball team for boys is being formed. 
The girls' basketball team also has several mem- 
bers from the eighth grade class. About ten 
junior high students belong to the after school 
chorus, and some of last year's members were 
in the yearly school musical. 

The senior high puts on a dance at least once a 
month, and many junior high school students 
attend these (Unices regularly. We think these 
dances are greal and are glad that they are held.
